Hi Bethany, and welcome to the forum! It's great that you get to spend (part of) your honeymoon in Switzerland. Hiking and biking are excellent ways to enjoy the scenery. Lucerne and the Interlaken region are wonderful, and both offer lots of possibilities you'll like, such as hiking routes, mountain trains and cable cars and boat rides. Scenic train rides are the trip from Lucerne to Interlaken over the Brünig Pass (via Meiringen and Brienz) and nearly all mountain trains in the Interlaken region. Some tips can be found here
. The trip up to Rigi near Lucerne is beautiful too.
As for a rail pass: that's a bit hard to say right now, as you should look for the right pass to match your activities. And that's quite a challenge if you're unsure yet of what your activities will be, where you'll be staying overnight, and so on. However, if you like the idea of flexibility you should consider a pass that's valid on all days and throughout the country, allowing you to go wherever you want and whenever you want. An 8 day Swiss Saver Pass
would be very convenient, especially if you want to be able to include some longer (and more expensive) train journeys. A Swiss Half Fare Card
can be considered too. It offers a 50% discount and may be an economical solution if you do want flexibility, but know beforehand that you don't want to make several longer train/bus/boat trips.
